Logitech M185 Mouse Review 

M185 is a wireless and compact mouse with an Ambidextrous design from Logitech. This mouse would make you feel more attached to the work you are doing with its excellent performance onboard. 

It supports wireless connectivity up to 10 m which is about a distance of 3 standard rooms(33ft).

It would be best for you if you have small hands as M185 has a small form factor. It would be a delight for you to use this Logitech M185 as your daily driver.

This mouse would feel extremely comfortable in your hand due to its contoured shape and its grip is also good.

More to say about is its scroll wheel is worth having. You would have more precise control of your work with M185’s smooth and accurate cursor control. However, the scroll wheel supports only 2D scrolling.

You can use this Wireless Mouse with an Optical sensor on any surface(except glass/shiny surface) you would like and this would work fine.

You can really depend on the battery life of this mouse as it would last for about 12 months with its single 1AA battery inside.

So, The M185 is overall a great offering from Logitech in the budget segment.

Logitech M325 Mouse Review

Logitech M325 is a wireless mouse with a small form factor, has several color options, and is of Ambidextrous design. It supports wireless connectivity to a distance of 10 m (33ft) in almost 3 entire rooms or a big hall.

Actually when you use a wireless mouse connected to your device this 10 m connectivity is really good to have.

M325 comes with good-looking color options out of the box which may even fascinate you.

Logitech M325 is a perfect mouse for people with small hands and even kids can use this with ease. M325 has rubber on its sides which makes it better to grip and helps even when hands get sweaty.

Also, the M325 mouse has 5 buttons i.e. Left, right, middle, and the other two buttons come from the tilting functionality of its scroll wheel – left and right tilt.

The 4D scrolling feature of its soft touch rubber wheel feels great to use and its added tilt functionality is really useful for regular tasks.

Also, you need not also worry about the battery life as this would last you 18 months with its single 1AA battery inside. This is much longer than an average wireless mouse.

M325 has a 3-year warranty and hence you can rely on the mouse in the long term.

Logitech M325 does not have any complaints regarding poor connectivity connection drops or even lags.

If you would like to add a dash of lively color to your workspace and boost your productivity, the Logitech M325 mouse is truly worth considering.

I highly recommend this product, particularly for its 4D scroll feature and outstanding performance.

Comparing the Pairing Process

The pairing of the Logitech Mouse is very easy. They pair and connect without doing any hard work.

To connect your wireless mouse either be it M185 or M325, you need the Logitech Wireless Nano Receiver.

The Logitech Wireless Nano Receiver connects easily by plug and play to your system. This saves our time configuring a new driver setup whenever you connect to any new device.

Comparing the Shortcomings of Logitech M185 and M325

Though M185 and M325  are extremely good in many aspects, there are a few shortcomings for both.

  1. I found that both these mice are of small form factor which may not be great if you have large hands.
  2. Neither M185 nor M325 mice support Bluetooth. You can only connect them via their Wireless Nano Receiver.

The Logitech Wireless Nano receiver takes a USB port. Also, with Bluetooth connectivity connecting with tablets would have been easier.

Other factors are well maintained and I have no complaints.

Software Support

Both the Logitech M185 and M325 support Logitech Options.

Logitech Options is software for tweaking and advanced customization of these Logitech Mouse settings. Logitech Options are a great option to have as we get a lot to customize the buttons on the mouse.

Which is better between M185 and M325?

Both the Logitech M185 and M325 are to be considered if you have small hands. You cannot go wrong if you choose any one of them.

But, both are not the same.

If you are mainly looking for a good mouse in the budget segment, then M185 Would be the pick. It’s a value-for-money product from Logitech.

However, if you can spend for a better and more feature-rich one, choosing M325 is a no-brainer. Its 4D scrolling makes it far more useful in day-to-day tasks. My personal choice would be M325 too.
